    What is a mediocre American perspective?

    [–] Weird energy beam seems to travel five times the speed of light peteroh9 1 points ago in space

    One minor issue with your explanation is that acceleration is defined as a change in speed and/or direction. So while the speed of the light doesn't change, the direction does. Most people probably don't realize this is also considered acceleration, so, as I said, it's a very minor point.

    Okay, what about when you're using an adjective to describe the ocean?

    I understand what you mean. You go from this wave:

    \/\/\

    to this wave:

    \

    ./

    ..\

    .../

    ....\

    And I don't know what to call that.

    What if it's a marine from any of a number of nations?

    [–] Can we finally make proper exit and merge lanes in this DLC? peteroh9 2 points ago in CitiesSkylines

    Not under typical circumstances. I suppose it's possible with construction or an accident but I don't recall ever actually seeing a stop sign.

    That said, there are sometimes stops just off the interstate on specific ramps. These are usually utilized during high traffic times and I only recall seeing stoplights but I bet there are entrances with stop signs.

    Sir POOPYPANTS,

    You refused to follow my commands and killed FORTY men. For this shameful display, you have been demoted. Do not let it happen again.

    What's the trick? I just see a normal merge that happens to be underground.

    Those aren't our version of the Autobahn. Our Interstates have the highest standards.

    Whatever dude, you arm it and set it before takeoff. To the layperson, that can be called turning it on. Then, after takeoff, you engage it. Just like how cruise control is turned on before it's engaged.

    Especially to the layperson, the control panel would be considered to be part of the autopilot. So it's ingenuous and inaccurate to the same degree that any popscience, pop history, etc., would be inaccurate.

    I don't think anyone believes that the pilots just push "fly" and then twiddle their thumbs, so it's kind of irrelevant that there are plenty of other (extremely) important tasks for them to do. The actual flying of the plane can be fully automated.

    Yes, sorry, you turn it on before takeoff, takeoff manually, then can theoretically fly without touching it again.

    He's right, although he seems to be implying that it's less functional than it really is. Sure, you program it to do something, but you can turn it on before takeoff and never touch the controls the entire flight. It's not a sentient pilot but it certainly qualifies as an automated pilot.
